Empowerment Counseling Ministries 

Start Your Journey To Healing 

At Empowerment Counseling Ministries, we believe that a person is whole and mentally healthy when they can care for their mind, body & spirit. Our mission has been dedicated to helping people in the healing process by integrating faith-based therapy with clinical psychology. We also want families or individuals who face challenges surrounding life's circumstances to be confident knowing there’s someone nearby offering help for whatever may need attention at any given time!

We provide a safe and confidential setting for people to heal emotionally, mentally, and spiritually through affordable psychotherapy. While our name says “Ministries," we are non-sectarian in orientation; however everyone is welcome regardless of faith tradition or lack thereof! We warmly welcome clients from all different backgrounds --we'll work together on finding out what will best suit YOU by integrating psychology with spirituality along with a tailored treatment plan so that healing can take place holistically.  Our therapeutic process focuses on the root cause of your current mental status to establish a treatment plan tailored for you by integrating psychology and spirituality.

Family Therapy

The word “family” is defined as a group of parents and children living together. It may also consist of extended and non-blood related family. However, what is important to recognize is that this group consists of many different personalities, beliefs, and experiences. With these differences, you may find yourself in crises that require outside support. When challenges arise, family therapists provide a safe space to explore the differences and build new connections. I believe that the family is the foundation of society, and when a strong foundation is laid our society and communities can and will begin to flourish and grow.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. 

Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.  

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. 

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. 

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
